OUR. INDIAN WAR. '
Fr&gmertt of Southern Oregon
History Regarding the Indian
Troubles of the Fifties.
Following closely upon the hardships
of that bleak winter of 1853 came the
outbreaks of tbe Indian. During tbe
summer of '64 Louis tialice, white
miner, was murdered by tbe redskins
and war was at once declared. Tbe
Indiana were not altogether to blame, as
many of them were wantonly killed by
the whites. Tbe copper-skinned savages
soon acquired tbe love of gold, as tbey
were not slow to learn that tbey could
exchange tbe metal for guns, pistols and
ammunition. Tbe sacks of gold entic
ingly exhibited by tbe miners excited
the redman's cupidity, and led him to
acts of treacherous assult. Chief Taylor,
who led the piratical band of Indians
that invaded the Rogue River Valley,
was banged in tbe Summer of '64, for
the murder of Louis Galice. Tbe hang
ing occured at Vannoy'a Ferry, six miles
below Grants Pass.
For three years war raged between
the miners and Indians. Forts wsre
erected by whites, into which they
would often crowd for protection. Much
blood was spilled, and not until the In
dians were completely subdued did the
war come to an end. During these three
years but little mining was done. Be
sides the outbreaks, the rainfall was
light and no water could be bad to run
the sluice. Hard times reigned over
the valleys of Southern Or.-gon, and when
reports came of rich strikes bring made
in Britieh Columbia, a stampede to tbe
new diggings occured. The camps along
the Rogue and Illinois were soon desert
ed. Furniture, camp fixtures of all de
scriptions, could be picked up anywhere.
aa tbe owners of the property had Joined
the rushing caravan for the north.
What bad been scenes of the busiest ac
tivity during those brief years of gold
excitement settled once more into the
silence of the time before tbe white man
A year after the white man departed
the Chinaman en'ered the Southern
Oregon country, and during the next
few years took out many tuns of gold
from the various districts. These mul
titudes of Orientals made no improve
ments at all in the country, and at pie-
sent it Is impossible to find the leant
veslige of the many thousands who once
worked the Southern Oregon streams.
The Celestials, being aliens, witb no
legal right whatever to mine on tbe pub
lic domain, were finally driven out by
the returning white men.
Who Is th Fslh.r ol It?
The proposed forest reserve iu South
ern Oregon is looking for an originator
or some one willing to take that respon
sibility. Attorney K. J. Smith seut the
following letter to the Oregonlan, the
reply being also g'.7?s. The people of
thia county don't want any forest re
serve. Grants Pass. Or., July, 18. (To the
editor.) The information in Monday's
Oregon inn concerning the proposition to
create a forest reserve of parts ot Jose
phine, Curry and Douglas counties
comes as a revelation to the people of
tli is county. Can the Oregonian give
the origin of this proposition? To those
who know the country, it seems appar
ent that the only object would be to en
able speculators to ecijuire scrip through
the settlers. The reserve as proposed
would cover the largest part of the min
eral zone of Southern Oregon and retard
the development of the mining resources
very seriously. The southern part of it
would cover tbe timber belt from which
this country must draw its supply of
lumber, but the northern part comprises
in the main a timberless range, valuable
only for its mines. The Oregonian can
perform no greater service for this vicin
ity than opposing this scheme.
RunEiiT G. Smith.
It does not yet appear who is at the
bottom of the project for a large new
forest reserve in Southern Oregon. It is
certain that Commissioner Hermann fa
vored a reserve there and a report by
Secretary Hitchcock to the House of
Representatives last year named the
generous boundaries indicated in the
Oregonian. People living in the vicinity
of the proposed reserve ought to be able
to give the origin of this move.
